Hula, Ukulele, Luau and More!

The Arc of Indiana Foundation hosted its biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Horizon Convention Center in Muncie. Nearly 200 guests enjoyed terrific food, entertainment by Indy Hula, music, deck games and bidding for silent auction items like Disney World tickets and a week’s vacation to one of RCI’s worldwide resorts. All proceeds benefited EGTI. Guests heard from several speakers but none touched more hearts than Jamie Beck, current student, and Caleb Ginn, EGTI grad and IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital patient transport employee.
